Young Republicans Chapter Started In Dodge And FDL Counties

A Young Republicans chapter has been launched in Dodge and Fond du Lac Counties. Fred Karsten is the Chairman and Zak Olsen the Vice Chairman of the Young Republicans. They held their first meeting this past week in Fond du Lac. One of their guests was Rohn Bishop the Chairman of the Fond du Lac County Republican Party. Bishop says millennials will play an important role in next November’s elections. He says, “This upcoming election is the first election cycle in which the millennials are the largest voting block. So it is very important that the millennials, and that generation behind them which is currently in college, that we reach out to young people and get them engaged in politics.” Bishop was pleased to be invited to the group’s first meeting. He says, “I was honored enough to be asked to attend and explain what the county party does and told them we would be happy to work with them. They had Senator Feyen and Representative Thiesfeldt come talk about legislative stuff.” The Young Republicans is open to any Republican under the age of 40.
